In Guardians Of The Galaxy, Zoe Saldana plays Gamora, “the deadliest woman in the galaxy,” and now she’s taking those talents to a new action-thriller called Hummingbird. That’s according to The Hollywood Reporter, which says Saldana will star in the film as “a female black-ops assassin” who has to “confront her true identity” while on a mission. Hummingbird is being directed by Swedish filmmakers Marcus Kryler and Fredrik Akerstrom, who previously directed the “cinematic content” for the video game Battlefield 1. Also, the script was written by a guy named John McClaine, which is a very a good name to have if you’re making action movies (even if it is spelled wrong).
We don’t know much else about Hummingbird, but THR does compare it to Luc Besson’s 2014 film Lucy, which is a reasonably good sign.
